How Do Fishbone Diagrams Solve Manufacturing Problems
How do Fishbone diagrams solve manufacturing problems? Fishbone diagrams (Ishikawa diagram, Cause and Effect diagram) are successfully used in various fields of industries and manufacturing to analyze the set of possible causes and their effects.
Fishbone diagram provides a process to clearly define the “Effect” and then puts you to thinking about the possible causes, based on the categories of common problems in manufacturing. It is believed that there are 6 main branches of causes in manufacturing, in extensive version are defined 8 branches, which are described accordingly as 6 Ms and 8 Ms of manufacturing. These are:
- Management / Money Power
- Measurement / Inspection
- Machine / Equipment
- Man Power / People
- Method / Process
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park lets you construct Fishbone diagrams that identify many possible causes for an effect for manufacturing problem solving.
Example 1. How Do Fishbone Diagrams Solve Manufacturing Problems
6 Ms and 8 Ms are globally recognized standards for manufacturing. First you need to define an effect of the analysis and add it as a head of your diagram, all causes listed above on this page are added as the bones (without particular order). If necessary, you can also use on the diagram another terms that better suit for your company.
It is convenient to develop a Fishbone diagram representing 8 Ms or 6 Ms on the base of specialized templates, samples of Fishbone Diagrams Solution or using the predesigned objects from the Fishbone Diagrams library.
Example 2. Design Fishbone Diagrams for Manufacturing in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM
The template you see on this page was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the tools of the Fishbone Diagrams Solution. It shows the Fishbone Manufacturing 8 Ms diagram and is available from ConceptDraw STORE.
Use the Fishbone Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Solution Park to demonstrate how do Fishbone Diagrams solve manufacturing problems.

Engineering students usually have huge amount of homework. Learning how to develop a technical drawing is one of the necessary skills. Luckily, at the present time, there’s no need to draw it on paper, because there a lot of software tools for it.
This drawing represents the Bearing symbols library, that is the part of the ConceptDraw Mechanical Engineering solution. Bearings are the important components of any movable mechanism. The function of bearing is to align, guide, and support the moving parts in any mechanical construction. Usually they are located between moving and stationary parts, it works as a connection point between them. Using Mechanical Engineering solution and ConceptDraw DIAGRAM one can effortlessly draw engineering diagrams of any complexity.

While studying, many of the students encounter the necessity of remaking class projects, over and over. To facilitate this process you can use special electrical and telecom plan software, which helps altering projects in several clicks. Using templates will fasten your work, and you will have more free time.
This sample represents an electrical and telecommunication floor plan. Electrical and telecom floor plans contain a floor plan , on which imposed the layout of electrical, and telecommunications equipment. They shows electrical and telecom details regarding the current floor of a building: lightening, fixtures, wires, outlets, circuit panels, etc. Using of standart notation of electrical and telecommunication symbols makes the plan understandable for engineers, architects, constructors, specialist in electricity and telecommunications.

To visualize the relationships between subsets of the universal set you can use Venn diagrams. To construct one, you should divide the plane into a number of cells using n figures. Each figure in the chart represents a single set of, and n is the number of represented sets. Splitting is done in a way that there is one and only one cell for any set of these figures, the points of which belong to all the figures from the set and do not belong to others. The plane on which the figures are represented, is the universal set U. Thus, the point which does not belong to any of the figures, belongs only to U.
